So we were skeptical to eat at this place because all we saw in there were tourists and the big hats gave it a "sprint break" feel that made us think the food would suck. But it didn't! It was really good and staff was awesome! Would eat here again!

I took my special half to see the ruins in Tulum and then into Tulum Pueblo. We were hungry and where advised by the cab driver that El Mariachi was really goo food. He was right, our waiter, Adrian was happy, met us with a smile, and gave us really good service. We had The fried Grouper and Tacos El Pastor. Really tasty taco the right spices an the fish was cook just right, not over done. Would we go back, you bet! The prices were right as well.

This is not a place that I would recommend if you want authentic or good Mexican food, food was terrible, bad service, we had to chase the waiter to ask to bring plates and forks, or to ask for water, The do make sure to ask you for the tip regardless of the bad service.

We dined in this restaurant while in Tulum.

We ordered a serving of Shrimp tortillas and Grilled Fish. Food tasted great!

For dessert, we decided to share home-made Cacao ice cream. It was served on a Cacao half-shell. Two words: Heavenly and Awesome! It was not sugary sweet like a lot of cheap ice creams in Canada and in the US. This one had just the right amount of sweet with a rich taste of natural chocolate. When dining here, we highly recommend you try out this stuff especially if you like good natural ice cream.

One thing we noticed that was a down-side was the price. We found it to be slightly on the high-side. Obviously, this restaurant mainly caters to tourists. We will not eat every meal here but it is worth a visit when you find yourself in Tulum.
